For Pain "I found this medicine very useful for pain. I had my ankle operated on and they prescribed this to me. I have to agree with most of the reviews. I felt little to no pain but I slept all the time and now when my ankle becomes painful I will take a pill and I have to lay down. My mouth stayed dry the whole time, I couldn't get enough liquids in me."
- Taken for 10 years or more

For Pain "I used this medicine everyday for sixteen yrs. It didn't really help that much with pain but it took me out of reality so I didn't care if I was in pain. Not an addicting feeling, so when I stopped it cold turkey when I moved to a different state I didn't feel sick for not having it."
- Taken for 2 to 5 years

For Pain "I tolerated this drug very well after dental surgery and regret that it is no longer available. The combination of Demerol and promethazine created a medicine that tended to be more effective for pain than Demerol tablets. I had no unpleasant side effects. Easy to use, difficult to get."
- Taken for less than 1 month

For Pain "I took this after a botched ex-implant surgery when it had to be redone a 2nd time. The first surgeon cut into the implant which leaked out into the body cavity then a second surgeon had to go in and clean up his mess. This helped keep me out of pain while my body was resting, repairing and regenerating. Of course, I slept most of the time. The 2nd M.D. was much better and more informed that the first one. It really helped and I was on it about 2.5 weeks. I didn't have any side effects coming off of it."

For Pain "It was great for a migraine and I took it after I got home from ER"
